Changing a local user's password

While local users can change their own passwords using the Change Password option in the StorageGRID Webscale header, users with access to the Admin Users page can change passwords for any local user.

About this task

You can change passwords only for local users. Federated users must change their own passwords in the external identity source (such as Active Directory or OpenLDAP).


  1. Select Configuration > Admin Users.
  2. From the Users page, select the user.
    If your system includes more than 20 items, you can specify how many rows are shown on each page at one time. You can then use your browser's find feature to search for a specific item in the currently displayed rows.
  3. Click Change Password.
  4. Enter and confirm the password, and click Save.
